We are an Advance Academic Placement School, therefore the
curriculum is very in depth and it requires a certain amount
of class work as well as homework. All the students from
fourth through eighth grade have a homeroom hour from Monday
through Friday to work in their homework.
Our school uses many different textbooks and materials,
some of them are from A Beka Books, which are very complete
and child friendly. A Beka Books are written from a Christian
perspective, and may contain a few biblical passages throughout
their chapters. Our teachers are instructed to cross, and
disregard any information that might be offensive to some
of the students’ beliefs. Our school reserves the right
to use such materials.
Are announced in the yearly calendar and in the monthly
calendar only, but may be scheduled as warranted by the teacher
